Of the many random things I enjoy about my occasional forays back onto the mainland, few rise as high in the rankings as road trips. Take someone like Podge and they would rather eat gruel three meals a day for a week than endure sitting in a car for any length of time.

Want more proof of their heavenly biscuit bliss? Here ya go…

Are biscuits for everybody? No (but they should be). Will you be guaranteed a good time and some fantastic eats? For sure. Will you walk out overly full and cursing me? Possibly.

Will you rush back the first chance you get? Without question…
